Indiana CTSI Retreat at IU Bloomington

Registration is now open for the Indiana CTSI’s upcoming retreat Monday, April 24, at Indiana University Bloomington. This year’s event will feature programming focused on team science and public health impacts related to translational research, including keynote speakers from the National Institutes of Health, the University of Kentucky, and the American Cancer Society.

The retreat will also highlight IU Grant Linking University-wide Expertise (GLUE) Award winners with talks by Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences faculty members Franco Pestilli and Andrea Hohmann. And the lunch break will be organized into a “speed-dating” session for participants interested in networking opportunities to expand their research scope.
